To the Edge of the World and back to their Roots is the story of a creative journey conceived in London and developed around the globe. A fashion and art exhibition by a young creative couple – Andrea Vytlačilová, fashion designer, and visual artist Josef Zlamal - tackling the quest for identity through a creative voyage.

After Creating a winning outfit for Grayson Perry in June 2018, Andrea Vytlačilová left London to explore the fashion industry working for Acne Studios, Marc Jacobs and Kenzo fashion houses. Josef Zlamal joined her on the voyage and the duo began creating a body of work as visual mementos of the time spent abroad and of the experiences they were exposed to whilst living and working in Sweden, the USA and France, their relocation back to London and their reconnection with their Czech and European identities.
Andrea Vytlačilová (*1996)
Andrea Vytlačilová is a young fashion designer and Central Saint Martins student, born in Eastern Bohemia, whose work moves between fashion, textiles, illustration and photography. She has worked for fashion houses including Acne Studios, Marc Jacobs and Kenzo. Recently, she was selected as one of Forbes Czechia’s 30 under30. Andrea is currently in her final year of studies, working on her fashion collection and a multidisciplinary project called ‘My Bohemian Tale‘ rediscovering Czech cultural heritage and resurrecting the disappearing textile industry and traditional crafts.

Josef Zlamal (*1983)
Josef Zlamal, born in Šternberk, is among the most promising of contemporary Czech artists. His work has been exhibited in the company of both contemporary and classic masters (e.g. Otto Dix, Lucas Cranach, Daniel Richter and Marc Quinn), in private institutions and leading public museums (e.g. the Power Station of Art, Shanghai and the Museum der bildenden Künste Leipzig). His paintings, drawings, sculptures and films confront the viewer with a world of uncertainty. He searches for light through darkness, offering new perspectives on history and geopolitical issues connected with human existence.
